Bamfield Main Resurfacing Project Header

Crews on the Bamfield Main Road have completed Chip Sealing. During the week of October 2 to 7, 2023, workers will remain on the road, sweeping, cleaning bridge decks, and removing berms.

Please remember that even with the Chip Seal being complete, a pilot vehicle will still be used for some zones where crews will be actively sweeping. Please expect a maximum 15-minute delay.


Huu-ay-aht has had a number of concerns brought to their attention in regards to vehicles speeding and putting other road users at risk, specifically around narrow sections of the road.

Please be aware of the road signage and obey the speed limit of 60 km/hr. The Bamfield Main is still an active industrial logging road and road users are travelling on the Bamfield Main at their own risk. To ensure safety for everyone, please slow down.

Be aware and watch for construction equipment, flaggers, crews are on the road, and follow pilot vehicles.

The RCMP will be monitoring for safe driving throughout the project and detour.

Please drive with your headlights on and drive with extreme caution.
